RENTON, Wash. — A person familiar with the decision says Houston Texans assistant head coach Alex Gibbs has agreed to join Pete Carroll’s Seahawks staff.
The person spoke Tuesday to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the Seahawks have not finalized the contract.
Adding the 68-year-old Gibbs is a coup for Carroll. Gibbs is known as a guru on the zone run-blocking scheme, which Carroll wants to make the basis for his Seahawks offense.
Gibbs, who joined the Texans in 2008, began coaching in the league with Denver in 1984.
